Doncaster fitness coach and former international distance runner David Tune is the ex-husband of former jockey and model Vicky Haigh. They have a daughter, now aged 7, who was sexually abused by David Tune for several years. There is compelling evidence of this abuse, including video interviews of the girl describing what her father did to her. Despite this, David Tune has escaped prosecution with the aid of his brother, PC Michael (Mick) Tune of Humberside Police Force, and Doncaster County Council. When Doncaster council discovered that the press had picked up on the story and intended to report on the council's corruption & incompetence they took out a court injunction (Reporting Restriction Order) (paid for by UK taxpayers) which prevented any press publication and also stopped Vicky Haigh from speaking out about the case, even to an MP. When Vicky went ahead and spoke to MP John Hemming about her serious concerns for her daughter's welfare, Doncaster Council began proceedings to prosecute her for contempt of court. Despite being heavily pregnant at the time (by her new partner of the past 6 years), Vicky was arrested and held in dirty police cells for 65 hours. She was then forced to flee the country to avoid being jailed for contempt of court and having her new baby taken away by social services once it was born. She has since given birth safely in Ireland but has no idea when she will be able to return home or be reunited with her other daughter.
Shockingly many more cases like this are currently going on in the UK. Please sign Sabine McNeill's petition towards lifting the secrecy of Family Courts. If 100,000 people sign it will force a formal debate in Parliament:
